Mum of a four-year-old hit by a car will decorate youngster's coffin

The devastated mother of a four-year-old girl who was tragically killed by a car reveals her plans to decorate her daughter’s tiny coffin with stickers.

Skylah-Lee was in the car with her father Samuel on Cadbury Rd in Claremont, in Hobart’s northern suburbs, on September 21 when their vehicle broke down.

Samuel pulled over and buried his head under the bonnet to try and repair it, but he didn’t see his little girl run on to the road and into the path of a white Ford Focus.

On Thursday, the pre-schooler’s family turned off the machines keeping her alive.

Family friend Natima Abblitt set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help cover the costs of Skylah-Lee’s funeral – which garnered a total of $4,600 in just three days.

The four-year-old’s mother Louise told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday that all the money they needed for her farewell had been raised, aside from coffin embellishments.

‘Everything is covered and paid for, apart from the wake and stickers and that for bub’s coffin,’ the mother-of-three said.

Ms Abblitt thanked everyone who reached into their pockets but they would not be accepting anymore donations.

‘The money we have raised will now go to Skylah’s family,’ she wrote.

Friends and family members flooded social media with gut-wrenching tributes to the little girl, including her aunt who was there in her final moments.

‘Oh baby girl this worlds so unfair,’ she wrote in a heartfelt post.

‘You’re so loved and going to be missed by so, so many people. 

‘I’m so glad I got to spend those last few moments with you and have so many memories I can keep forever.’

She said their lives wouldn’t be the same without Skylah-Lee’s ‘gorgeous, cheeky smile or sassy attitude’.

Another family member wrote: ‘Can’t believe you have grown your wings already baby girl so young.’

‘Going to miss you like crazy … Fly high baby girl, RIP xxx.’

After the accident last Tuesday, Shylah was rushed to Royal Hobart Hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

After multiple surgeries and scans, doctors said the damage to the youngster’s body was too severe. 

‘It’s a tragic set of circumstances. Children are unpredictable and we need to make sure as a driver … and as a parent, we ensure we look after our children,’ Tasmania Police Senior Sergeant Karl Krelles said on Tuesday.

The driver of the other car, a woman in her 40s, has been offered support. Police say speed was not a factor in the accident.

An off-duty doctor provided assistance to the girl before an ambulance arrived.
